larsniclas (6124) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2008
Sampled at EBF08. Pitch black. Chocolate and a lot of alcohol in the aroma. Thick and oily palate. Soylike saltiness in the flavour. To alcoholic.

Maria (10191) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2008
EBF2008. It’s pitch black and the aroma has tons of dark fruits, berries, coffee and licorice. The mouthfeel is oily. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, coffee, licorice, dark fruits, berries, a slightly burnt bitterness, chocolate and its vinous. I think it might be less sweet than First Edition but with a little more alcohol. It would be great to taste the two of them side by side. No matter what, this is world class!

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
Bottle at EBF 08. Some heat on aroma. Nice enough, some liquorice on end. Hot. Alcohol is a little evident. It’s a little whisky like in character and too much liquorice for my liking. If I can get a bottle, I will age it for a year or two and then see what it’s like.

Rune (9331) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2008
100ml taster at European Beer Festival 08 in Copenhagen. Black as the devil with a tiny, dark beige head. Smell on dark fruits with underlying vapour of brandy-like alcohol. Honeyed-covered malts in flavour supported by dark coffee which gets more bitter towards a long-lived ending with a solid alcoholic tingle. Full bodied. Amazing stuff, apart from some distracting alcohol. Looking forward to the bottle version (13.09.2008).

hirigalzkar (2550) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2008 Sample @ Stockolm Beer Festival 2008. Black colour. Dark brown head. Intense roasted flavor with malt and alcohol. Hints of salt, soy, tar and dark chocolate. The alcohol is little to intense. This will be a killer beer in a couple of years when it´s matured a bit.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 27, 2008
Sampled at EBF2008. Pours a black beer with a brown head. The aroma is roasted, alcohol and malt. The flavor is roasted, raisin and alcohol. The beer is very big in taste, and there is no doubt that this beer would gain a lot by aging.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2008
Draught at EBF. Black, brown espresso head. Syrupy, alcoholic aroma, tar, rubber oak. Flavor is spruce, resin, sweet burned malts, tar and alcohol. Great balance for a beer this big, the alcohol didn’t bother at all. Can’t wait to get my hands on the bottles.

Fin (8320) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2008
Had this at European Beer Festival, Kobenhaven 12-09-08. Poured very dark with creamy head. Really, really full flavoured, thick almost chewy absolutely gorgeous. There is vanilla, port, some hoppiness whips around, really thick and indulgent beer, quite, quite lovely. As good as this is I reckon with a bit of age on it it will improve quite considerably.

Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2008
[EBF @ Copenhagen, September 2008] Average creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma was quite strong and dominated by alcohol, with roasted malt, coffee, bitter chocolate, English liquorish, dried fruit. Full bodied with an average carbonation and thick alcoholic texture. Heavy bitter flavor with good counter sweetness. Lingering burned bitter alcoholic finish.
